Have you tried butternut squash noodles? I just did the other day, and they are yummy! I was able to buy them already "spiralized" from the grocery store, and that made them really easy to fix.
I roasted them in the oven using THIS recipe.
They were very tasty with some meatballs and spaghetti sauce.
Recently we were visiting my MIL in Cheyenne, Wyoming, where she now lives, and there is a Menards there. Do you ever visit Menards? It is like a quilt shop for the do-it-yourselfer! This one is the closest to us at about an hour away, so it's a "must go there" when we have a chance. I enjoy shopping there, too - probably as much as Mike does.
While we there, I decided I had to have a couple of new solar garden lights that rotate with different colors - green, blue, purple, red. They're fun!
Wendy, at Pieceful Thoughts of My Quilting Life,
will know just what I'm talking about! :)
I love this picture of my dad, taken in about 1985, with my younger son. I got it out on Father's Day this last Sunday.
My dad passed away in 1992, so old photos are always enjoyed!
Carole, at From My Carolina Home, released the last clue of her Scrap Dance Minuet mystery QAL last Friday, so I sewed up all the pieces I had made into four blocks for a tabletopper size.
This is made from the August Blogger Bundle that I purchased from Bernie at Needle and Foot - fabrics for the bundle were chosen by Carole, so it seemed like the perfect project for them.
I like this star that emerged when you sewed up the flying geese and four patch units!
I have enough fabric left to make a pieced backing and for the binding, and then this will become my August tabletopper for the dining room table!
I've also enjoyed working on my Tiny Tuesday block this week - a little appliqued basket.
This is the first one I've ever made, so a good learning experience for me!
I like learning new things!
And a good book I enjoyed reading earlier this week -
The quote at the top on the cover calls the book, "the gold standard of summertime escapism!" That made me laugh! It was a very good story, though - more to it than what I expected from a book on a list of the best beach reads!
Have a great day, everyone!
